A perfect cake for picnics, this cuts well and may also be served warm with whipped cream. An Australian recipe posted for Zaar World Tour 2005

A delicious cake. My only criticism is that Step 7 omits to mention placing the cake batter into the tin. Some of my topping fell off too, and I wonder if some of it could be sandwiched between two layers of batter before baking. I may try this next time....and there will be a next time. Thanks for posting Fairy.
